    In the days when glass bottles were expensive, sealed bottles were used to denote ownership and encourage the return and reuse of bottles. Hedges & Butler would have filled such bottles as this from casks and barrels in their cellars for onward delivery to clients. A deposit would have been paid on their return for refilling.
